I always get really happy when I notice that the 13th falls on a Friday!
13 is my lucky number, unlike millions of people around the world who think its an extremely unlucky date. The reasons as to why this date is unlucky is widely disputed and I suppose nobody will ever really know the true origin of this superstition.
It is my lucky number because my dad was born on Friday 13th of January, and without him I obviously wouldn't be me. Its always been his lucky number and over time it became mines too. I even live 13 floors up and love it haha.
I got a wee 13 tattoo a few years ago, pictured above :) It killed 2 birds with one stone; it is a symbol of luck as well as a tribute to my dad. It is on the inside of my ankle and the process of getting it done was nippy. Very nippy haha. Worth it though, I love it. When my dad seen it he laughed because it was so tiny. I have been told on a few occasions that I am stupid for getting such a notoriously unlucky symbol etched onto my skin but it has never brought me bad luck. It just reminds me of my daddy bear and looks pretty as hell!
Which camp are you in? Is today unlucky or is it all a bit silly?
